The BJP on Tuesday condemned Opposition parties for questioning the credibility of electronic voting machines

New Delhi: The BJP on Tuesday condemned Opposition parties for questioning the credibility of electronic voting machines and asked them to accept their defeat with grace if the people vote Prime Minister Narendra Modi to power again.

Party leader and Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad took a swipe at the Opposition, saying EVMs were fine when its leaders like Mamata Banerjee, N Chandrababu Naidu and Amarinder Singh win elections and come to power, but the machines turn unreliable when it appears Modi will come back to power.

BJP spokesperson G V L Narasimha Rao said Opposition parties are desperately seeking an alibi for their impending massive defeat and their sudden mistrust is "unsurprising and unimaginary".

"When they win, as they did in state polls recently, EVMs are trustworthy. But when they lose, they become questionable. Their selective trust in the EVMs is hypocritical and mischievous," he said.
